Sorry if this ruins anyone else’s day as it did mine…Enrique responded to Britney’s <i>Good Morning America</i> statement, confirming they will not be touring together this summer. The <i>I Like It</i> singer, who is currently on tour in Europe, was supposed to co-headline with Spears rather than just open the show.
Sources tell MTV that Spears lowered the Iglesias’ guaranteed pay.
"Unfortunately, Enrique Iglesias and Britney Spears will not be touring together. Despite initial reports based on formal discussions of the possible run, Enrique will continue on his solo tour in support of his new album Euphoria," his spokesperson stated. "Enrique has great respect for Britney and is a longtime fan of her work. He is very sorry for the confusion this might have caused to anyone."
In other Iglesias news, ShowBizSpy reports the singer continues to date tennis player Anna Kournikova, but they have no serious plans as of yet.
Britney’s statement was a tease, and very unfair. I am a huge fan of both singers, and think it would be amazing if they were to actually go on tour together. While MTV also spoke of possible negotiations, it doesn’t seem promising after what his spokesperson says. However, Britney is talented, and a phenomenal performer, so she doesn’t need a co-headliner or someone to share the spotlight with. With or without Iglesias, I’m still going to jump on the bandwagon for these tickets.
Oh, and not to mention, I’m still bitter that him and Anna Kournikova are still going strong. He is so good looking, and, yes, I’m going there, but who wouldn’t want to be that girl he sings about in his songs? ;)
